De dwa da dehs nye>s Aboriginal Health Centre

De dwa da dehs nye>s needs a new van to transport our elderly and very sick patients to and from medical appointments. This van will also be utilized to transport patients to Indigenous Ceremony and Health Promotions activities. We are raising funds to purchase a new van to transport our People.

We know from the "Our Health Counts" Research Study released in 2011, that 35% of First Nations people report difficulty accessing transportation to access medical appointments. Additionally, First Nations people carry a greater health burden at a younger age and half to 3/4 of adults have limitations due to illness.

Only 22% of First Nations people in Hamilton earn over $20,000 compared to 57% of the general public, and 22% reported that they do not have enough to eat.

Tax receipts will be provided for all donations of $20 or more.
